LAS VEGAS -- A National Park Service official says rangers plan daily searches for two Las Vegas-area fishermen missing since their 16-foot vessel was found capsized last week.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area spokeswoman Christie Vanover says searchers will continue daylight searches this week on the water around where the 16-foot fiberglass boat was found Friday.

The body of 48-year-old Oscar Dixon Jr., of North Las Vegas, was also found Friday about a half-mile from the overturned boat north of Gull Islands.

Vanover says more than 100 searchers covered almost 47 square miles of shoreline and water Saturday but didn't find the other two men.

The group was reported missing late Thursday by a family member who said they hadn't called in for the night.
